face-to-face, around the united nations meetings, these kinds of things. they have now spoken. does this put this to rest? >> well, suzanne, they also spoke for about an hour about two weeks ago, and they are in consistent contact, as are members of the president's national security team, and secretary hillary clinton. you know, the president is focused on governing, restoring our place in the world, focussing on what needs to be done in these areas, and mitt romney seems to be focused on politicizing inappropriately at many times these global issues. there's a real difference. >> how do you respond to some folks who look at this the way this is played out and make the case that the president was kind of drawn in to this kind of political back and forth with netanyahu? was that really an important part of the president coming forward and saying, look, demonstrating to the american people that he is on top of what is going on in israel, they're on the same page? >> our relationship is israel is absolutely important. the president is the first person to say that. you heard prime minis
the u.s. election. the speech at the united nations seems to have pushed that off a little bit. the prime minister made a very tough case against the iranians for supporting hamas and hezbollah, both organizations that used suicide bomb attacks around the world. that was part of his case why iran should not get a nuclear weapon. of course the united states and israel has gone back and forth when and if a strike is necessary. the united states secretary of state sat down with prime minister netanyahu yesterday for a meeting. that is not the meeting that the prime minister wanted. he did want to meet with president obama. requested a meeting. that was request was denied. the prime minister offered to fly to washington, d.c. today to meet with president obama. we learned he is spending much of the day at campaign events. back in israel, we look again at the newspaper. not all the reaction is positive. next to the prime minister drawing on the diagram of the bomb is a headline a little bit making fun of him saying bebe, the prime minister's nickname, boom. one headline down here. t
management in the middle east when you have a key united nations gathering, not to meet with world leaders, including netanyahu at a time with so much concern over iran? >> this president has been, obviously, in constant contact throughout these four years with world leaders. megyn: joining me now, brad blakeman, former deputy assistant to president bush, and dick harpootlian, chairman of the south carolina democratic party. welcome back. now we see some of the senior advisers and some tough questioning put to them, in particular about a subject we've talked about on this show, and that is whether it was appropriate for the commander in chief, you know, within 24 hours of this assassination, first time since '79 a u.s. ambassador was assassinated plus three other americans, to go out to vegas on a campaign event, brad? >> well, look, this is not in keeping with their narrative, megyn, that usama's dead, and gm is alive and well. usama's dead, but al-qaeda's alive and well and killing an american ambassador, three others and destroying property. the fact that this president would have the a
president obama stood before the united nations and warned against a nuclear iran. yesterday, netanyahu underscored iran having a nuclear bomb and shrugged off. he said the world may be months away from the point of no return. >> where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. befo before, before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. before iran gets to a point where it's a few months away or a few weeks away from amassing enough enriched uranium from making a nuclear weapon. >> mahmoud ahmadinejad accused israel of carrying out a campaign of ethnic cleansing. netanyahu fired back saying the state hood of palestinians cannot be resolved with quotes libelous speeches. >>> it's been 37 years since the body of jimmy hoffa went missing and now it may be found. crews went digging in detroit. this is a live picture. investigators will dig under that driveway and take a coarse sample to determine if any human remains are down there. the home is in roseville, michigan. they got a credible tip a body was buried there around the t
for fairness. the united nations once again proposing a global tax on billionaires. 1% of their wealth would be given to the u.n. to disperse throughout the third world. it's not going to happen but that's what many want to see. wealthy people being forced f. to give up assets to the controlling power. the problem with that is the that controlling power is often corrupt, inept or apathetic. does anyone believe the u.n. spends money responsibly? anyone? buehrle? how about the u.s.a.? the more money washington gets the more it wastes. why? because we don't have enough federal workers to police the entitlements hundreds of billions of dollars are wasted or stolen. we all remember this guy in the bathtub, jeff neeley partying in vegas his crew ran up $825,000 in expenses for nothing. they just wanted to live large on the taxpayer dime. how about the drug enforcement agency? few years ago it sent 368 people to istanbul for a conference. price tag $1.2 million. more than a thousand dollars aday for each american at the event. i could sit here all night and give you stuff like that. when you hear p
with practical things like the princess said the economic empowerment of women. everyone knows in the united nations that is the fastest way to change the world in the direction of not only peace but social justice, economic justice, sustainability, health and well being. it's 50% of the population of our planet and they are disempowered for the most part. >> i was talking to the general and he was saying that the impact of having musicians come to this initiative here cannot be under estimated that you can get to these huge audiences that hang on your every word. i know you take that responsibility seriously. globalization is here and it's real and there is a sense, i think, for many americans we don't want to be the global policemen with the terrible toll and loss of life to our soldiers and economically. >> yeah, well, this transparent world that we live in now, america has to realize now we are part of the world. we are not leading the world. we do in some shape or form but when it comes to education we're not. we're dead last when it comes to education. as the world becomes more technol

to step down in a fiery speech at the united nations just a short time ago. he accused the united states and its allies of supporting terrorism in syria. cnn's senior united nations correspondent richard roth joins me in new york. richard, we know topic of syria very much so dominated in the conversation, this past week at the u.n. ga. we're hearing from the syrian government directly. what did he say? >> it was a fiery speech in words, maybe not how it was delivered. second year in a row for the syrian foreign minister to represent his country caught in a maelstrom of violence back home. the syrian foreign minister blasted the united states among other countries for supporting what he calls terrorists for toppling his regime. >> translator: we also wonder to what extent the statements made by qatar, saudi arabia, turkey, the united states, france and others to what extent do these statements, which clearly incite and support terrorism in syria with money, weapons and foreign fighters, to what extent are these in line with the international responsibilities of these countries in combatti
on a wiley coyote acme style bomb at the united nations today when talking about iran. 40 days out with the surge in afghanistan looking like it did the opposite of what it was supposed to do, 40 days out with "the new york times" reporting that the romney campaign's big national security legal idea is to have president romney rescind the ban on torture on his first day in office. that's their big idea. that will help. 40 days out from the election, there has to be a way to build on this one small thing this republican campaign for the presidency seems capable of handling when it comes to national security matters. if not for the country, if not for the candidate, then for the country we should try to be optimistic about this, right? mitt romney showed today he is capable, at least, of mentioning veterans and how veterans get treated even if he doesn't totally understand the issue. let's start there. the fact he can handle that much, we can at least take as a starting point. i mean, in previous campaigns, yeah, we've been able to have debates about the wars. this year the republica
's speech at the united nations. it was embarrassed to this country. i mean, all he did was go back to condemning, condemning, condemning a movie trailer. that's the more amateurish -- >> it's pathetic. >> sean: and benjamin ne netany, watch this. >> the question is whether, it's not whether this fanaticism will be defeated, it's how many lives will be lost before it's defeated. >> i've made it clear that the united states government had nothing to do with video. i believe it's message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity. >> when it comes to the survival of my country, it's not only my right to speak, it's my duty to speak. >> true democracy, real freedom, is hard work. those in power have to resist the temptation to crack down on dissidents. >> there's only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomic bombs. and that's by placing a clear red line on iran's nuclear weapons program. >> america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy, and we believe there's still time and space to do so. >> a red line should be drawn right here before iran completio
. >> bill: rice is taking the heat for that the secretary of the united nations. it will be interesting to see who put her out there and told her to say what she said. >> very interesting. >> bill: possible that she said it on her own. it's not unheard of that a u.n. ambassador would do that most likely somebody said look, you have got to get out there and say x and y. hillary clinton is a very shrewd politician. she didn't say anything inadvertently one way or the other about the attack. i agree with you that the american intelligence agencies had to know it was hot over there in benghazi. certainly we could have done a better job protecting our people i'm not sure that hillary clinton was directly responsible for all of that. i'm saying that because of so much else on her plate. she is racing around in china. got iran. got israel. got all of that kind of stuff. i know i manage a very small operation compared to her. and i don't know what everybody is doing. somebody might come across and say, look, this segment may be going down or this person is not doing it and it kind of goes right
for legalization every day. we had three presidents at the united nations call for legalization. i think things are going our are way more than ever. are three states that have, oregon, washington and colorado have it on the ballot this year. we are real hopeful. >> how would life be different under roseanne barr's administration? >> well, it would make a lot more sense, i will tell you that. i would have pot legal and i would immediately make war illegal and the business of war illegal. war profiteering is ridiculous and shameful. >> tell me your opinions of president obama and candidate mitt romney? >> i think they are both relevant to the majority of the american people. they work for the same guy and i think the american people have the right to vote for a party not owned by bankers and that is another reason why i'm running for president. >> so she is serious about this? >> serious enough to have gotten on to the ballot in at least, florida. i think her main objective is to keep her party aleve by raising enough votes and money. the peace and freedom party needs 45,000 registered voters on
. that speech that he gave at the united nations, he was pandering. who was that speech directed at? not muslims. radical islamists. we're so sorry. we're really so against that video, that movie trailer. he's pandering to radicals. somehow in the back of his mind i think he thinks he can convince them to be nice to us. >> right, right. he thinks everyone loves him. to get back to david's point, i mean, one thing that i think romney may have been shying away from, and i don't think he should, because it's the linchpin of what you're saying, and that is obamacare. once obamacare goes into effect, that's it. that's lights out for america. there's no coming back from that. we only have a few years to repeal it. i mean, it was obama's own treasury secretary, timothy geithner who said three years ago that social security, medicare, medicaid, interest on the debt to pay for those programs within 10 years will consume 92% of the federal budget. you add in obamacare, we're a pathetic western european country and there's no america out there to protect us. >> as you said, a million times, he's the worst
today at the united nations. palestinian president mahmoud abbas expected to campaign for nonmember observer stat turks stopping short of seeking full statehood. later, benjamin netanyau will speak to the assembly. he isn't expected to respond to abbas but address a more immediate concern for israel, iran's nuclear ambitions. >>> a top army general charged in a sex scandal, brigadier general jeffrey st. clair is accused of wrongful sexual conduct and having inappropriate relationships with several female subordinates a military hearing will determine if he will be court martialed. he served as deputy commander of the 82nd airborne in afghanistan before being relieved in may. >>> air force one was forced to abort a landing. the plane was flying the president to a campaign convenient in ohio but the pilot decided to pull up, circle around, try again. reporters on board say the jet hit bad weather and turbulence yesterday on approach to toledo express airport. news crews on the ground were initially confused about what was going on. moments later -- moments after this flyover, you coul
's a quote from their meeting. that followed netanyahu's blistering speech at the united nations general assembly, made it very clear israel would demand a red line to prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon. literally drawing that line in front of the audience. here's how it went. >> where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. before, before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> the spokesman for the israeli prime minister netanyahu, nice to have you with us this morning. we appreciate your time. >> thanks for having me. >> earlier this week we were talking about the hostility that seemed to be there between the prime minister and the president. now we end the week with a speech from benjamin netanyahu, which uses the words, appreciation, and common goal. i'm going to play a little chunk of that speech and then i'll ask you a question on the other side. >> i very much appreciate the president's position, as does everyone in my country. we share the goal of stopping iran's nuclear weapons program. this goal unit
to the united nations, susan ryce. he was either not included in some of these briefings, which would be troublesome, or just thrown under the bus when she went out on the sunday shows, explaining that this was not a planned attack, and we now know it was a terrorist attack in libya. >> do you think anything's going to happen with that, with susan rice? do you think she could potentially lose her job or no? >> i don't think she'll lose her job, but i don't think we'll be seeing her much in the upcoming months. >> molly, best and worst? >> i'll give best week to todd akin, the republican senate candidate out in missouri. the deadline passed this week for him to withdraw from the race. he was under heavy, heavy pressure from so many republicans to get out. they say they couldn't possibly win. he stuck it out, he knew they'd come around and they'd give him their money and their support when they didn't have a choice, and sure enough, that's exactly what's happening. you have a lot of republicans magically changing their mind now that they can't get him out of there. and for worst week, i
